Everywhere and Nowhere

To me, the meaning of home is a hot mean and a warm bed. It also means time to relax and time to do chores. It’s a place to watch T.V. and to play outside. Home is not just a physical place. It can be a collection of people, or just one person. It can be anywhere; north or south, east or west.

Home is everywhere and nowhere.

It doesn’t matter who you are; your age, your race, your gender, because everyone has a home. Home can be big or small – a cardboard box, or Buckingham Palace. It can be hot or cold. It can be can be everywhere and nowhere; because home is community, where you can relate with people and share struggles with others.

This is what home means to me.
